Saturday, 20 January 2007
Steps in your journeyI was thinking while lying on bed the other day. Just before I went to bed, I had a thought. A good thought. It is always a dream for me to build a business empire – A huge business empire. Getting stuck in Asia means that there are limitations as the economy isn’t as fantastic as the European Union, Great Britain, the United States or even the upcoming China. However, one thing that I’m pretty sure, the Internet is borderless. That means doing business anywhere and anytime. Thus this might be the best venture EVER in this century.

I’ve missed the first wave that came during the mid and late 90’s – the first Internet wave. If I caught it, I’m sure I’ll be wealthy. But back then I didn’t have a great vision – the vision of building a business empire. 10 years later which is now, my vision finally took off. And it all started with one – DotMySpot.com. Though nothing majestic or something to be awed at, this is my launch pad to success. People might laugh at me or perhaps maybe they are half true, that I might never succeed. Oh well, I got the other half to prove them wrong. Or at least get them half way wrong (if you get what I mean).

If you knew me, I consider myself as an avid gamer, in fact a pretty hardcore gamer in the past. I spent countless of hours just to finish a mission or to gain more online treasures or even save the princess from the devil – this might sound corny, but it was THE THING in the past, exactly 10 years ago.

Before I went to bed yesterday, I had a thought. I notice that there is a hierarchy in every community. You started out as a noob or newbie and when you graduate you become a freshman and slowly a senior and finally the BOSS. I consider myself a NOOB or newbie when it comes to building an online business. Though I might be not as young 10 years ago, I just started building something online last month. Continuous building will graduate me to a freshman. I notice that there are already hundreds or in fact thousands of online gurus out there. Many of them have already set up pretty impressive websites or online businesses. A glance at Adwords advertisements you can see a few of them. And not only they have advertise their sites in Adwords, you can even see similar advertisements in Yahoo! Publisher, BidVertiser, AdBrite and many more. Those are the people that have the resources to burn and those are your online gurus.

Chase after your money - give it a good runThis journey might take as little as one year before I see some reasonable and sustainable results. Compared to problogger Darren Rowse, he took three years. Not only he has a great blog, he revealed that he has several other websites. Another senior and self proclaimed Internet Marketer Gobala Krishnan is also one of them. Once I remember he claimed that he has over 20 websites running concurrently online! I am still receiving many, many and MANY emails from his business everyday. This is how I learn from him, by looking at what he is doing.

Here’s an illustration of the hierarchy itself.

BOSSDoes not even need to update anything on his website, he pays other people or a blogger $200 a month to do the work for him. At the end of the month, he gets a five to six figure income from Adsense, affiliate programs, advertisement revenue on his website and enjoys a monthly holiday abroad. You can find his advertisement everywhere on Adwords, Yahoo! Publisher Network, etc. High chances that you will see his websites appearing at the top of the list when you do a search in Yahoo! or Google. His websites have a page rank between 7 to 9 and some even 10 in Google.

Senior/Gurus – Knows the ways of the FORCE. Just started to grow exponentially and is appearing everywhere on various advertisement channels. Has up to 20 websites within his grasps. A steady four to five figure income every month. Celebrated as the problogger and worshipped by the freshman or noob. If you ask for his advice, he’ll most likely tell you that automation is the key and money is what makes things goes round the world. Has several website with a page rank of 5 to 7

Freshman – Starting to make money out of his website. Everything is money on his eyes. When a noob request to exchange links most probably you’ll get this response – What’s in it for me? Charges $50 a month for links from his website that has a page rank of 5 and 6 to noobies that wish to get their site indexed into Yahoo! or Google. Has tons of offer by various paid to blog sites to post articles on his web. You can find many sponsored links in the link section. Some even decorated their sites with advertising banners.

Noob – The babies and maybe future online business empire owner. Just started to realize that money can be made online. Unfortunately more than 50% of noobs died half way in their journey. 75% didn’t even get through half the way and 90% died during the first three months. These are the workers of an organization and have a 9 to 5 job and aren’t really committed to what ever they are doing in their lives. For those aspiring noobies, you can find them posting messages in forums requesting for link exchange, always checking out other people’s blog for online opportunities but generally this group of lads are good and friendly people. Has a page rank of 0 to 4.

So which are you? I’m one of the noobies. But imagine this, a gang of noobs can actually be more powerful than any gurus. Anyone wants to team up with me? Page me by dropping a comment.
